With plenty of scope for further improvement SCIAMPIN, beaten less than a length when third off this mark at Yarmouth two weeks ago, is probably the one to beat here with Goal having shown his best form on the all-weather so far and being beaten in a seller at Ripon on his latest start. Celani is knocking on the door, however, and shouldn't be far away again while both Zaheeb and Sangar were sent off favourite last time, though the former's close second at Yarmouth in May is looking increasingly like a one-off. Newmarket third Focail Maith and the unexposed Lordofthehouse may be best of the rest.
